Poetry. THE BUTTERFLY. BY, MRS. STEELE: PRETTY vagrant of the air, Summer's day, from youth to age, Emblem of the thoughtiess fair : Trifles all their care engage ; Near akin their life and thine,

But when wintry storms arise, Both a fleeting summer shine. Beauty fades, and pleasure dies; Short delight your charms impart, Me let nobler cares employ, Charms to catch the human heart : Cares which terminate in joy. Hearts that can be caught with show, Ere the summer gunbeams tree, The virtuoso or the beau.

Let me, like the frugal bee, Thoughtless nymphs are butterflies, Well improve the smiling hour, Different species, larger size ; Gathering sweets from every flower. Strangers both to needful care,

O may virtue's charms be mine, Fluttering, roving here and there ; Charms that still increasing shine! Basking in the vernal ray,

These will cheer the wintry gloom, Trifling out the summer's day : These will last beyond the tomb.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. To give room for the interesting life of Mr. Tennent, we have been obliged to discontinue, for this number, the life of Luther, and to omit several communications prepared for insertion.

We invite the particular attention of our readers to a piece on Religious Sincerity, inserted in this number, which is from the pen of a highly respected foreign correspondent.

2. will accept our thanks for his seasonable, pious, and useful thoughts, excited by the late eclipse. We wish an early communication of the remainder for the next number.

Pastor's Survey of the Churches, No.3, shall, if possible, appear in our next number.

We are happy, after so long silence, to hear again from our esteemed and able correspondent, CONSTANS. We hope soon to gratify our readers with his seventh Letter to a Brother.

IMPARTIALITY is received. It is our pleasure to gratify our friends and correspondents in all cases consistent with the nature of our work, especially where the honour of American literature is concerned. We readily admit, with our correspondent, that the Review in the Anthology, referred to, and several others in that work, deserve severe censure, as being without correct taste, and indicating not only strong prejudices against the genius and literature of our country, but in other respects a very bad spirit. But as it is our fixed determination to avoid filling our consecrated pages with angry and fruitless controversy on any subjects, our correspondent, we presume, will readily excuse us in declining his request, and in advising him to seck another and more appropriate channel for his communication. The wishes of his friend can be better fulfilled by us in a different way.

We have on our files, reviews of a number of sermons lately preached, and of other recent publications, which shall appear, as fast as the pages in that department of our work will admit them.

WHEN the late Rev. George ance had supported his spirits, or Whitefield was last in this coun that he should, before now, have try, Mr. Tennent paid him a visit sunk under his labour. He then as he was passing through New appealed to the ministers around Jersey.
